Please note: Due to COVID-19 our programming and volunteer needs look a little different this year as most of our programming has shifted online. We are still looking for new Provincial Technical Committee members. We hope to have you join us in 2021.
Provincial Skills Canada Competition
Each year we host the Regional and Provincial Skills Canada Competitions with the support of hundreds of volunteers. These volunteers serve a critical role in the execution of our programs; from setting-up the event, to registering competitors, to being a part of a specialized technical committee that plans everything from projects and judging, to sourcing equipment, and more.
Regional Skills Canada Competition
With hosting one combined regional event, we are planning to create a collective regional committee group (Regional Committee Collective) for each contest area (vs. the usual individual regional committees). This is to help spread the hosting (orientation, safety, competition monitoring, etc.) and judging requirements for regions that may not be able to offer as much faculty support this year.
Girls Exploring Trades & Technologies Conference
Help girls GETT ideas, GETT information, and GETT inspired about career exploration! We are looking for energetic Industry Influencers to share their experience, knowledge and enthusiasm for their career journey.
More information coming soon!
National and International Opportunities
Skills Canada and the WorldSkills International Competition brings together over 1000 competitors from across the country and the globe to raise the status and standards of vocational skills and training nationally and internationally. Hundreds of volunteers take part in the setting-up the event, to registering competitors, to being a part of a specialized technical committee that plans everything from projects and judging, to sourcing equipment, and more.
2021 – 2022 Volunteer Opportunities
Skills Exploration Days
Volunteers have an opportunity to help out in a number of ways – from helping out in the Learn-A-Skill stations (Cabinet Making, Carpentry, Fashion Technology, Welding, Sheet Metal, Graphic Design, Electrical Installations, and Plumbing), to more general volunteer work like making sure that students don’t chop off their fingers with x-acto knives. Individual and group volunteers are welcome and no previous experience is needed.
Cardboard Chariot Races
Volunteers will help with setting up the construction floor and judging the boats based on a number of criteria, including design, speed, and the best and most dramatic sinking. Individual and group volunteers are welcome and no previous experience is needed.
